Welcome back to another Tuesdays With Lazerbeak! Doomtree just got home last night from our big West Coast run, so I’m playing catch up a little today. Enormous shouts to everyone in Seattle, Portland, Oakland, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas that came out to catch this leg of the Off in the Deep Tour. That was insane. I didn’t do a very good at grabbing pictures this time out, but here’s a quick shot of the Seattle show (courtesy of @anjapublic).
And here’s one that Stef grabbed of some of the folks who came out in Portland. The turnouts and energy at these shows were phenomenal. Feeling very grateful for all the support.
Here’s a cool shot that Sims grabbed of Stef and Astronautalis feeling waaaaaay blessed. Big time shouts to Astronautalis and Sister Crayon for completely destroying these shows. Such a great lineup to be a part of.
Now it’s time to look ahead at even more sweet shows coming up real fast here. Next up is Halloween in Milwaukee for a very special show with Doomtree and Lizzo. For those of you that live near the Twin Cities, our good friend over at Surly Brewing Co. are putting together an awesome road trip package that includes transportation, lodging, meals, tickets to the show, exclusive swag, and tons of great beer. Check out the flyer below for all the details. Seats are very limited, so you’ll wanna swoop these up fast if you’re planning on going. You can grab tickets right HERE. This is gonna be the best!
For those of you in Wisconsin who are just looking to attend the show, you can find those tickets right HERE. Can’t wait to hang with Lizzo and catch some her new material live. Hope to see a bunch of you out there ringing in Halloween right.
The following weekend we’ll be knocking out our last two festival appearances of the year. First up is Witching Hour Festival in Iowa City on Friday, November 6th. Grab tickets and info right HERE. Should be a blast.
From Iowa we’ll fly down to beautiful Austin, TX for a performance at the 10th annual Fun Fun Fun Fest on Sunday, November 8th. So many great bands are playing this one, I don’t even know where to begin. Check out the crazy lineup below and grab your tickets HERE. We’ll also be announcing details of our official Fun Fun Fun Nites afterparty show very shortly as well. Stay tuned!
And don’t forget about the final leg of the Off in the Deep Tour wrapping through the Midwest, East Coast, and Canada at the top of December. This will be our last run of the year, and I’m really looking forward to visiting all these towns. Tickets and all sorts of sweet deetz for each show can be found right HERE.
That should do it for upcoming shows for now. I wanted to send out a big congrats to the Grand Prize winners of our Pop Quiz, Hot Shot trivia game. Thanks to everyone who played, it really was the best to watch people have so much fun with this thing. You can check out a full list of the daily winners and Grand Prize winners HERE and play the game minus the prizes right HERE.
I’ll leave you with a few Bonus Jams that I’ve been bumping as of late. Our old friend Craig Finn just released his second solo album and it’s really great. I’ve spent a lot of time on the blog over the years talking about what Craig and his band Lifter Puller meant to me as a kid growing up, and it’s always really excellent to hear new music from this guy. Check out “I Was Doing Fine (Then A Few People Died)” below and grab Faith in the Future right HERE.
Janet Jackson dropped her new Unbreakable album this month and it’s a total heater. I was really afraid “No Sleeep” would be the only real joint on this thing, but there are a ton of hits on here. Check out “BURNITUP!” below.
Lizzo just announced that her new record Big GRRRL, Small World will be dropping this December. Check out first single “Humanize” below and get pumped. The album is awesome.
Just got put onto this new band Dilly Dally, and I’m way into it. Definitely appeals to the junior high indie rocker in me. A lot of it has a Pixies vibe, but even louder and tougher. Check out “Desire” below. The singer’s voice is pretty incredible.
I’m still a little on the fence about this Drake/Future mixtape, but there are definitely a few cool tracks on there for sure. Here’s “Jumpman” off of What A Time To Be Alive.
And here’s a bonus Drake video just because of how absolutely ridiculous the dancing is in this thing. Mind blown. Let the memes begin.
I’ll leave you with a few Bonus Penny Pics before calling it. I’ve been missing this little peanut like crazy being gone so much with tours, Korea, and the Zoo. Really excited to be home for a bit and get in some serious quality hang time. She went on her very first camping trip this past weekend with her mom and granparents. Here she is in front of the new teardrop trailer, lovingly christened the “Miss P.”
And here’s Penny with Mom getting ready for a big hike. Cool face.
One more of these guys. It appears that Penny has been working on her Donald Trump “Ya fired!” routine. All business, all day.
OK! That about does it for this post. I hope you all have a wonderful week. Thanks again to everyone that came out to last week’s shows. Stay tuned next week for some big news coming from the Mixed Blood Majority camp. See you next Tuesday!
